Essay on the free software movement
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 3, 2009
For my introductory IT class I have chosen to write my research paper on the free software movement's effects on Information Technology(End Users, Distributors, IT professionals)

The Free Software movement is dead. Linux doesn't exist in 2007. Microsoft Bill Hilf
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 11, 2007
"The Free Software movement is dead. Linux doesn't exist in 2007. Even Linus has got a job today." Controversial statements from the head of Microsoft's Linux Labs, Bill Hilf.
Well um, I'm nearly speechless on this one.
It's good that people are working and getting paid for working on Free Software. It's no secret. We have volunteers too.
What makes it Free is the GNU GPL license and those rights we get along with it.
I think the guy's argument is bunk, there is plenty of Free software that runs under Windows yet Linux is still here. My personal opinion is that he's an <insert your favorite expletive here>.

Mystery Case Files by Big Fish Games is there a free software alternative?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 2, 2009
My girlfriend loves the Mystery Case Files series of games by Big Fish Games. (I confess they are fun.) Are there any free software or open source alternatives? Are there even any hidden object type games for Linux? I've been searching for a couple of days now and haven't found anything promising yet.
I'll also welcome any recommendations for moderately easy puzzle games, if you know some.

Free Software 3D Adventure Game ``Humm and Strumm'' Looking for Developers
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 28, 2010
My name is Patrick Niedzielski. I am the lead developer of the Humm and Strumm project, a Free Software project with the goal of creating a 3D adventure game called Humm and Strumm. In this game, two players will collaborate as the main characters, Humm and Strumm, to prevent the evil Dr. Geoff from taking over the world. Armed only with yoyos, Humm and Strumm will have to travel through various lands until they finally get to his layer. Players will also be able to unlock the competitive Tag Mode, in which players can play a game of school-yard tag in several arenas.
Our team looks like this:
Patrick Niedzielski (myself): Lead developer.
Ricardo Tiago: Engine developer, in charge of rendering subsystem.
The truth is, there aren't that many 3D adventure games out there in the community. We've a wealth of Free/Open Source FPS games, platform game, and puzzle games, but in the way of adventures, there are surprisingly few. Furthermore, those that do exist ar
Just how Ethical is Open Source/ Free Software?
location: linux.com - date: March 21, 2013
So, it's been about two years (I think, I lost track) since I started my Linux adventure. Since then I have learned far more about programming than i ever did in my five years with working strictly with Windows. I've also gotten a taste of the alternative OS camp, and even tried BSD *shutters*. And, of course, I've been introduced to the Open Source/Free Software movement.
I used to believe that I was actively fighting digital tyranny by choosing only Open software (That sounded really pathetic now that I wrote it), but now I have a question that just wont go away: Why is it a moral issue? If Open Software works for you, great! If not, then go buy proprietary software. Digital goods are just commodities: of you don't like it, don't buy it. If I don't like the way Apple or Microsoft locks in their code....Then I just don't buy it. And more to the point, as far as "locking in" their customers with protected software: It's Apple's and Microsoft's code; shouldn't they b

My intention with this post is give to our community one example of activity that can we do to promote and seed information about Free Environments with good impacts in social community environments.

5- Hacking Mind Security.
6- Free Software -Linux- Free Community (Social / Scientific / Economical - Impacts)
7 - Practical - Boot a Linux cd / pen in one machine to install Linux - to make free one machine computer.
Best Free Software to Securely Send Large File To Friend Over the Net
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 10, 2010
I am looking for good free software to send large files to a friend. I have tried Skype, but it was too slow, so I am looking for something that basically only uses the two PCs, some software, and no third party or server. We can figure out our IPs, if that would be a step to eliminating a 3rd party or service.
I have searched the internet for terms like P2P, private P2P, F2F, SFTP, etc., and I'm just more confused! What's free and rocks? It's not for music or multiple users, just for 2 users and big documents.
* Free or open source
* Both Linux (for me) and Windows versions (for my friend)
* Good GUI, easy to use (no command line)
Thank you for your help,
